“Posters are not simply public notices. A public notice aims to inform or command. A poster aims to seduce, to exhort, to sell, to educate, to convince, to appeal. Whereas a public notice distributes information to interested or alert citizens, a poster reaches out to grab those who might otherwise pass it by. A public notice posted on a wall is passive… A poster claims attention – at a distance. It is visually aggressive.” - Susan Sontag “The Art of Revolution – 96 Posters from Cuba”.
